Since 1994 we’ve worked with some amazing organizations, including Massachusetts General Hospital, NASA, Harvard University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Motorola, The Currier Museum of Art, Le Meridien Hotels, and many more.
We began our relationship with the USS Constitution Museum with a very large, complex K-12 curriculum for teachers to use as a guide not only in learning about the storied ship, but also about several core subjects such as math and science. The curriculum was a huge success, with two major reprints, and we subsequently […]
Having seen our curriculum for the U.S.S Constitution Museum, the U.S. Department of Education asked us to create an irresistibly engaging book promoting government-funded reading programs. The result was so successful that we followed up with a book promoting technology programs. Both books were so popular that they were reprinted several times, and thousands were […]
The Rennie Center is much relied-upon resource for education research, and their “Condition of Education” report is a key resource in the field. We worked with them to define a new structure and interface for their website, including an innovative way to allow visitors to create their own research reports from the “Data Dashboard.” In addition […]
To promote a groundbreaking, but slightly difficult to understand business service from Sodexho, we were asked to create colorful, appealing materials that would both explain the program and its benefits and make the ease of enrolling very clear. As mailers to companies and leave-behinds at trade shows, these were very successful in driving awareness and […]
As the go-to provider for all the things needed to make movies, TV/video, professional photography and much, much more, Rule Boston Camera has a massive inventory of gear and equipment for sale or rent. They also do events, training and demos. Their website had to showcase all of that, while making it easy for production crews […]
We were asked to create an identity system for Roedel Companies that would include the top-tier Roedel entity as well as subsidiary companies—the number and names of which were likely to change. Our solution was a simple “main” logo with derivations distinguished by color for each of the subsidiaries. We then applied the identity to […]
Partners HealthCare asked us to create an online education system to introduce administrative staff to an entirely new, system-wide software system. We used animation and voiceover to keep the lengthy, and sometimes complex series of modules engaging–these also served as teaching cues to help users absorb a large amount of technical information. The system tracks […]
NSLIJ asked us to create an online education system to introduce administrative staff to a new software system. To keep the lengthy, and sometimes complex series of modules engaging we used animation and voiceover, which also served as teaching cues to help users absorb a large amount of technical information. The system tracks visits and […]

We created the Center’s website, as well as the website for their siter organization Mass2020; we’ve designed annual reports, research reports, case studies and sophisticated online databases for […]
The astronauts aboard the International Space Station photograph the Earth hundreds of times every day. These scientifically important (and often beautiful) images are stored in a massive database, but are not accessible to the public, nor are they “geo-located” to their precise position on Earth. We’re working with NASA and TERC in Cambridge to create […]
We have been working with a team at MIT led by Dr. Damon Centola for several years on a number of online products created to collect research data on the behavior of networks of people interacting online. The findings from these studies have been widely recognized and to date two papers have been published in […]
The MIT AgeLab conducts both theoretical research and real-world exploration into the effects of aging and how to make ever-longer lives ever-better as well. Having created an identity, website, online research study-game, stationery system, program brochures, annual reports, research reports, and a variety of other materials, we continue to work with AgeLab to evolve and […]
Navigating a major medical center in a large city for patients and families dealing with cancer can quickly become overwhelming. We worked very closely with the amazing team at the Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center to create an app that would make the experience as uncomplicated as possible. In addition to presenting and explaining clinically-oriented […]
We have a deep involvement with the Mass General Cancer Center, stretching over a variety of project types. We have created a number of physician referral and outreach pieces as well as the predictably extensive Physician Directory. We’ve also created research reports, annual reports, a research website and the website for the Cancer Center.
Mass 2020 asked us to create an identity system and website that emphasized the positive, optimistic work they do in the world of expanded learning time for schools. We carried the bold, simple colors and forms through the identity, stationery, annual reports and website to create an overall sense of simplicity and progress.
Our branding and corporate identity work is always focused on creating unique, appealing, strong and engaging messages. The logo, as the basis of the brand is the “flag” around which the organization builds its entire visual presence
For John Snow International we created Data Academy, an online training system for public health professionals. Data Academy presents a series of topical modules with music, voiceover and animation, as well as periodic “Knowledge Checks” to ensure that users comprehend the information. We also created the Refugee Health Technical Assistance Center (RHTAC) to help refugees […]
Market-making technologies are great fun to explain, but it’s critical to get it right. We worked with Heuresis to create a website that would provide easy access to specs, videos, support and case studies. Now the value of these breakthrough public health and safety XRF products is instantly recognizable.
The Harvard Center for Cancer Prevention asked us to create an identity and website for them. The success of these projects led to newsletters, educational materials and the development of “Your Disease Risk”, an online public health application featured in US News and World Report, and in the Wall Street Journal, which said it “stands […]
We were asked to work with the Gore Place team to create an ambitious K-12 curriculum based on the Gore mansion and Federal period lifestyle. We conducted extensive research into the needs and capabilities of the teachers who would be using the curriculum and found even if the budget had been able to support printing […]
Working with the marketing and in-house design team at Face2Gene, we created a website for a new medical app. The results from the technology are amazingly concise and usable, but explaining the way the app works for clinicians and researchers was a challenge— it’s a whole new diagnostic paradigm. With a clean, colorful and simple […]
In addition to creating alumni outreach and development materials for Emerson College, we were asked to work on some unusual projects as well. One, a gift book for Max Mutchnick, the creator of the TV sitcom, “Will and Grace”, was composed of student portraits matched with interview transcripts describing their experience at Emerson. Only two […]

Cambridge Systematics is one of the top consultancies in transportation and planning. They’ve been around for over forty years, but their culture and their expertise are three steps into the future. We created a new brand and website that reflect the energy and momentum of this “40 year-old startup.” The website has a personalization feature, […]
We developed an identity for Blackstone Block that was unique and memorable, and expressed the dimensional quality of architecture. We created a strong, simple, flexible website, and through precise die-cutting, a stationery system and project portfolio system that create changing patterns of color and shape.
The identity and website, including online assessment tools, that we created for ACF had to be visually strong, interesting and engaging, while presenting a specialized medical topic with related online testing and information resources. The result is an accessible, useful medical resource.
We developed an identity and stationery system for this high-end home furnishing and accessories store in Camden, Maine. The logo and the tactile materials used for the stationery refer to the year-round beauty and simplicity of the coastal northeast.
